Was is really “Women and Children First” on the Titanic?

Using data compiled from the Encyclopedia Titanica, it really was “Women and Children First” on the Titanic, especially if they were in first-class.

Things got worse in the second and third-class groups and for most of the crew with the exception of deckhands. In general, the closer you were to the main decks the more likely it was you could make it to safety.
